The University's Digital Accessibility Tutorial is an animated online introduction to producing digital content that is universally accessible

This mandatory training covers the 2018 digital accessibility regulations, which explains the key legal requirements that we must all meet. These regulations apply to all public bodies and all individuals who produce digital documents and resources.

All staff who produce a digital document or webpage at the University need to understand what the regulations are and how to meet the required standards in their digital practice. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) will be the enforcement body for the regulations. In the event that there is a failure to comply with the requirements, both the institution and any individual staff members involved in an instance of non-compliance may be held, technically, liable.

The tutorial signposts how to update your digital skills to meet these new regulations and you can complete the tutorial on the Learning Management System (LMS).

You are also invited to sign up for a briefing about the digital accessibility regulations and what they mean for your digital practices. Briefing sessions are available on the following dates:

  • 12pm to 1pm on Friday 13 November
  • 12pm to 1pm on Wednesday 18 November

Book your place at the digital accessibility briefing via Eventbrite.
